We support male victims of domestic abuse to recognise, seek help and report.


Step into Spring is a new Health & Wellbeing challenge aimed at encouraging all colleagues to complete at least 30 minutes of activity each day throughout February.

Given the latest and toughest lockdown, and with spring just around the corner, we wanted to encourage everyone to stay active and work together towards a common goal while supporting charities that are close to the hearts of colleagues across Seetec.

How will it work?

Step into Spring is our first Seetec group challenge and will launch on Monday 1 February.

We are inviting and encouraging all Seetec colleagues to complete at least a 30-minute activity each day over the 28 days of February. The activities can be indoors or out, from walking and yoga to cycling and running.

The activities will need to be tracked by using Strava. We have already set up a dedicated club for Seetec employees in Stava called ‘Seetec Movers’.

If you wish to participate in Step into Spring you will first need to sign up to Strava for free and join the Seetec Movers Club using the following link: 

Supporting charities

Colleagues that participate in Step into Spring will be asked to make a £10/€10 donation themselves and, with for every colleague that completes the 28-day challenge, Seetec will further donate €18/£18 per employee. You must complete the challenge!

Our Employee Champions have selected charities that are close to their hearts and that we feel are representative of the knock-on impact of the lockdowns in the UK and Ireland - domestic abuse and mental health.

Our confidential helpline is available for male victims of domestic abuse and domestic violence across the UK as well as their friends, family, neighbours, work colleagues and employers.

We provide an information, support and signposting service to men suffering from domestic abuse from their current or former wife, partner (including same-sex partner) or husband.

This can range from physical violence or object throwing to abuse such as constant bullying or insults.

The helpline is a listening service which provides emotional support, practical information and signposting.

We receive calls from male victims of domestic abuse across all age ranges and professions:

• From dustmen and doctors, to, bankers and builders

• From men in their 20s to men in their 80s

• From men in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The helpline also welcomes calls from friends, family members, neighbours, colleagues and employers of male victims seeking information.

We also receive calls from support organisations, charities and statutory agencies such as local authorities and police forces.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
